    Charly the sea lion left his circus pool and took a "sightseeing tour" across the city right in the middle of morning rush hour, German magazine Spiegel Online reported.

    Charly, who performs in a circus currently on tour in Coburg, caused quite a stir among the city's residents.

    After running through the streets, the animal finished his morning walk right in the heart of the city and settled next to a police car.

    ​How the animal made it over the fence of the circus, remains a mystery.

    Charly is one of three other sea lions at a circus, which is currently on tour across Germany. His tamer described him as an early riser. After having been contacted by police, he brought Charly safely back home.
